Little Explorers Online Picture Dictionary, K-5
Little Explorers, from Enchanted Learning, is an online picture dictionary with links. It includes close to 2,500 entries, with each word used in a meaningful sample sentence. Most entries have links to carefully chosen, child-friendly Web sites from around the world. There are seven different versions of the dictionary, including a version organized by the initial sound of the words in English. To browse through the dictionary, click on a letter in the alphabet at the top of the window to access a page of words that start with that letter. Then click on an underlined word (or its accompanying picture), and link to a related page. Since the pictures are links, even pre-readers can surf with a minimum of help and guidance from their teacher or paraprofessional. Older students can use Little Explorers as a school reference.
